TIL about the diff command, which is probably old news to many of you. Very handy in conflict resolution when syncing files in .

Then, of course, I learned has its own more powerful version of that.

Any or folks (or both) want to give me a few pointers before I dive into the manual later today? Maybe examples of usages, blog posts, etc.

I'm excited to learn this :)


@jrss You mean the diff command in terminal or in Emacs. If in Emacs, I really dig the ediff commands.

@jrss I haven't used the Emacs `diff`, but I use `ediff` heavily.

The following link (a really old blog post of mine) does not have ediff tips, but a "DWIM" wrapper around ediff functions so that I need to call just that one ediff-related binding :)


@kaushalmodi still not getting it from what I saw and your post. Seems like the regular emacs diff is good enough to compare org files...? Having hard time finding a video examples of how to use, etc.

@jrss From what I understand, ediff is more interactive. About the M-x diff, there is this in the manual: gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/
